Wsh our communituy center was here!

Santee Mayor John Minto said he would like to see a community center built near the Edgemoor Barn but the plan is to build it near the YMCA. Wouldn’t be a beautiful site? Let the city council know.

Are you decluttering?

Are you decluttering your house or the home of a loved one? Sometimes it’s easier to grt rid of something when you know other people are going to value it as much as you do…and you can visit the item any time you want to. Considering bringing the item to the Santee Historical Society to see if it is something we could use to bring history alive.

Why we do it….

We have been asked by one of our members why the Santee Historical Society is doing events that don’t seem to be related to Santee History. Click on the link below for the answers.


It is membership time!

Just like most organizations we had to shut our doors during Covid.    We were unable to host events nor did we get new membeships and renewals.

Now we  are opening our doors and asking you to once again support the Santee Historical Society with your membership.   You can renew via the internet or print out the membership form and mail to us with your check.  

Membership is a statement of belief in the importance of Santee history. Our members believe what we believe: history can illuminate the past, lend perspective to the present, and inform the future.

The old green and white barn is the oldest building left in the city of Santee. The barn contains an eclectic collection of local historical interest. The volunteers who run the place are great. Great place to go if you are interested in local history or genealogy. You can also order copies of old photos if you are into that sort of thing. They also have some really great programs for the whole family. Admission is free, but they have a box for donations. There is also a native garden outside.


Carol gave us the tour of the barn. There were many cool historical items in the museum. Items from when it was a dairy farm, part of the Edgemoor Hospital and Photos of documents of Santee history.
